Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 bedroom, 3/4 bathroom, Sleeps 3

Our circa 1920 Red Casita has been fully re-modeled for your home-away-from-home comfort. Nestled in the back yard of one of California Heights’ oldest Craftsman houses, the Red Casita is close to freeways and transportation, but part of a beautiful neighborhood with tree-lined streets and historic homes. California Heights was awarded the First and Grand Prizes of Neighborhoods USA's (NUSA) 2012 National Conference, and was featured in Sunset Magazine’s “10 Most Desirable Neighborhoods” write-up in 2004. It is conveniently located between Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Head to the beach for a day in the sun, to Naples Island for a gondola ride, to one of several theme parks, or simply out your front door to enjoy lounging on one of two brick patios. The possibilities are endless.

The Red Casita is a studio apartment which features a queen size bed, twin sleeper sofa, 40” flat screen TV with Verizon Fios, DVD player, WiFi, Ethernet, a portable air conditioning unit and access to a brick patio with BBQ. Efficiency kitchen features microwave/convection oven, toaster, electric skillet, coffee maker, refrigerator, and all cooking/dining necessities.

Very Nice

  • 4 of 5

Stayed here in July for a little less than one week. The booking and payment process was both easy and thorough. Very nice little place that had all the amenities needed for an enjoyable stay. It was ideal for a place to sleep and a few small meals while enjoying the area. It's located in a great location of Long Beach, safe and lot's to see and do in the immediate area. It's ideal for the budget conscious traveler who is tired of the hotel scene.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a long weekend to attend a Convention at the Long Beach Convention Center and wanted it to be a small vacation. The Red Casita is close to the freeway which made it easy to get to and from the Convention Center each day. It is cozy, comfortable, very quiet, and peaceful. Have already recommended to my friends. Will definitely try to stay here again when back in Long Beach. If it wasn't located in Long Beach I'd ask to live there! Thank you Esther for everything, you truly have a beautiful place!
